Whenever we are in New Orleans, we like take to take our daily a.m. constitutional at either Audubon or City Park. Audubon is great, but I really love going to City Park. As you enter its impressive drive, you are likely to see a film maker shooting a scene, a wedding photographer with the bride-to-be or maybe starry-eyed lovers holding hands, set against the backdrop of mighty oak trees. A local told us that many of the oak trees in City Park were lost during Katrina. That said, the many acres of oaks is mightily impressive.
At the end of the drive is the New Orleans Museum of Art. The regular collection houses everything from folk art to Faberge with a large collection of art from Oceania. My favorite is the Sculpture Garden, a spectacle of large-scale sculptures that can be viewed from a meandering sidewalk.
If art isn't your thing, the golf course is very affordable. It's $20 for 18 holes during the week, $14 if you tee off after 2pm, and $12 if you're over 55. This is a much better deal than Audubon offers.
When you need a respite from roaming around New Orleans, rest your feet at City Park. There's good people watching and lots of other good stuff to take in.
